Oenology
Lost my two column default page layout with 3.3 (3 posts)

    Hi Chuck

    I updated Oenology (still a very great and sophisticated theme!) to 3.2 and had a page width issue, which I imagine you also found because when I updated to 3.3 that problem was fixed.

    However since 3.3 I have lost my right side widgets on my static front page. All that is displaying is the main content. Before this update I had content on left and widgets on the right. When we first implemented Oenology we had a problem with getting the layout like this (it was not a normal option back then) and it might be possible that some hand edit was done in CSS file to do so.

    Do you have any thoughts on where to look?

    Also my trademark year doesn't update in the footer .. it still shows 2011. Any thoughts on how to edit that?

    Thanks again for a great looking theme!

    Hi Breezy,

    Let's try to track down the front page issue first.

    1) Assuming you're using a static page as front page, for the page assigned as the front page, what Page Template do you have assigned?

    2) Assuming the Page Template is "default", what is the Static Page Layout you have assigned to that page?

    There is no out-of-the-box option for a content-on-left, sidebar-on-right layout for static pages. That's perhaps something I could add.

    Now, for the footer copyright: the default copyright text uses the oldest published post to derive the copyright date.

    The copyright date specifically is not filterable (something else I should add), but the copyright text itself is, via the oenology_hook_site_footer filter. For example, you could add the following to a Child Theme:

    function breezy_site_footer( $site_footer ) {
        // Site name/link
        $site_footer['copyright'] = '<span><a href="' . home_url() . '">' . get_bloginfo('name') . '</a></span> ';
        // Current year
        $site_footer['copyright'] .= '&copy; ' . date('Y');
    
        // Return
        return $site_footer;
    }
    add_filter( 'oenology_hook_site_filter', 'breezy_site_footer' );

    This will replace the oldest post date with the current year.

    I've the same problem. Using the default page lay out on http://www.waltervandenbroek.info.
    Had the two column lay out but it disappeared on the update. The right column with widgets disappeared, in wordpress it is the sidebar column top. Moving the widgets turns to a three column lay out instead of a two column lay out.

    Thanks Walter
